Scat Pack back at the track for faster runs

by Patrick Rall on

Recently, we brought you a video of a 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack blasting down the quarter mile in the mid-12-second range. That Challenger is owned by Allpar reader Brent Gravel, and he was back at the track this past weekend to see if he could improve on his previous best time – which he did in a big way.

The weather was hot in Oklahoma, but that didn’t stop Gravel from turning out a stunning new best time for his Challenger. He stopped the clock at 12.183 with a trap speed of 110.18 miles per hour and to pull off this awesome run, his Nitto drag radials hooked hard enough to pull off a show-stopping 1.315 60 foot time.

This Scat Pack Challenger has the 8-speed automatic transmission and stickier-than-stock Nitto drag radial tires, but the Dodge muscle car is otherwise unchanged from the way the factory made it.

That is an awesome time for a car that has a starting price under $40k. It seems to be just a few mods away from 11s in good air.

This video shows Brent Gravel’s 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack laying down a 12.18 quarter mile pass.
